Easily removable gear coupling. Teeth use high-frequency hardening and surface area uses chromate plating for high durability. Tooth type uses crowning machining and can be used up to a maximum of 5°. Pilot hole products and shaft hole full items with keyway and tap available
Gear couplings transmit the highest quantity of torque and the highest amount of torque in the tiniest diameter of any flexible coupling.
Each coupling contains two hubs with crowned external gear teeth. The hubs mesh with two internally splined flanged sleeves that are bolted together. Gear couplings accommodate angular and axial misalignment by the rocking and sliding of the crowned equipment the teeth against the mating sleeve tooth. Parallel misalignment is accommodated by having two adjacent hub/sleeve flex points. Gear couplings require periodic lubrication depending on the application. They are delicate to lubrication failures but if correctly installed and maintained, these couplings have something life of three to five 5 years and in some instances they can last for decades.
Gear Couplings’ triple-crowned teeth are crowned on the root, tip and face to articulate freely and minimize wear due to misalignment. Through the elimination of tip-loading while reducing backlash and radial clearances,HEPT triple-crown teeth might help protect products from damaging loads.
